We had the best time at the Embassy Suites and to finish things off in this suite at Pebble Beach is beyond wonderful! There's a fire place in here - So romantic! Golf today was incredible - in fact every course we played was unbelievable! We loved each of them for their character! Perfect blend! Thank you for an awesome 30th anniversary trip! I'm telling everyone about you!!!

I worked with Suzanne on a custom VIP California Trip with Wine Touring during the California wildfires. Trip was awesome and updates and changes to wineries had the trip seamless - clients loved the trip!

We had three couples travel to California in September 2017 with private drivers to the Napa/Sonoma wine country. Their trip was seamless and awesome. The private driver in Napa was so wonderful the clients bought him a special bottle of wine. The clients told me the picnic sandwiches we the best and all the hotels were wonderful especially in Monterey…..a place they did not want to leave. Working with Suzanne, who is so knowledgeable, was a breeze. Thank you for making the planning easy and the trip memorable for long time clients.
